San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Fosamax Side Effects lawsuits.
According to court documents, on April 5, 2013 a Pennsylvania woman filed a lawsuit in St. Clair County Circuit Court (case no. 13-L-185) alleging that the makers of Fosamax made exaggerated claims of the drug’s benefits. Fosamax, manufactured by Merck, belongs to the class of drugs known as bisphosphonates. It was approved by the FDA in 1995 and developed to treat post-menopausal osteoporosis and Paget's disease of bone. In the lawsuit plaintiff alleges that taking Fosamax weakened her bones, and increased the risk of injury.
As Reuters reported on February 5th, 2013 Merck was ordered by federal jury to pay $285,000 in a lawsuit over the risks associated with Fosamax (case no. 1:2008cv04119, New York Southern District Court). In the lawsuit plaintiff alleges that she took Fosamax from 2000 to 2006 and, as a result, she suffered severe and permanent personal injuries to the jaw bone, including osteonecrosis of the jaw.
